RECTOR’S MESSAGE

Greetings, friend! And welcome to our website…we’re so glad you found us! It’s a little hard to describe all the things that are happening here at St. Andrew’s, but I have to say this: Great things are definitely happening, and it’s exciting. Really.  For those who’ve wondered about church these days, this might be a good church to try. I believe all of us have a hunger and thirst inside that can’t be satisfied by food and water. It’s our spiritual side, and life becomes wonderful when we pay attention to it and explore it. The trick is to find a space that can help us nurture our spiritual lives and grow in a safe and welcoming environment.  Some churches are better than others at providing that sort of environment. Those that succeed work for success. We at St. Andrew’s have joyfully undertaken that work.  If you are seeking a place that is renewing itself, we might be just the right fit for you. And if you have a family, this might be a great fit for them, too. A good church can be a wonderful help and lift in life—and in ways that might surprise us.>> read more

CENTERING PRAYER  is an easy and wonderful way to connect with God and find inner peace.   Our dedicated minister, Susan Kelly, who has practiced this ancient tradition a long time, and is now teaching the practice on the island, invites you to try it out.  9:15 am every Sunday over in the Parish House library.
